Gianluca Petraccaro

  • Carrara, Italy
Gianluca Petraccaro (Caserta, 29 September 1992) is an Italian communication designer focused on graphic and web, specialised in typography and lettering.Currently based in Glasgow, he delivers design during the day, and creates artworks during the night.Behind his works there's a solid belief: glitch - intended as art - is not the mere and random alteration of a shape. Instead, it means how far the alteration can be pushed in order to remain pleasant to the eye.The technique is constantly developed experimenting new styles, aesthetic and beauty canons, being inspired by digital environments and human body.Most of the times the only tool used is just an image editor. Once found the right image, he starts playing with it from a general idea until the process builds itself in an action flow.
